A British woman said she was threatened with a police visit to her home if she didn't download a Covid-19 tracking app.

According to LockdownSkeptics.org, the woman from Skipton tested positive for COVID-19 and immediately self-isolated in her home.

What followed was a flurry of 20 texts from the National Health Service (NHS) demanding that she download the NHS "track and trace" App.

She refused to download the app since she is already self-isolating. Her refusal prompted a phone call from the Test and Trace system. The caller threatened her with a "police check at your address if you do not download the app."

According to Zerohedge.com, the track and trace app is "completely voluntary" and authorities have no grounds to enforce downloads.

England and Wales are under emergency "Tier 3" lockdowns which means everything is shut down except hospitals and grocery stores.

Residents are stopped at the entrance to grocery stores by police who ask them what they plan to purchase inside. Only "essential items" may be purchased. Items such as cakes, sanitary napkins, makeup, books and clothing are not considered essential items.

Cops raided the set of singer Dua Lipa's upcoming music video after concerned locals reported the star for violating lockdown rules.

According to British tabloid The Sun, the "New Rules" star was accompanied by a large crew on the set in Shoreditch, east London, on Wednesday night.

According to onlookers, Dua and her crew didn't adhere to social distancing regulations.

"Dua and her entourage were having the time of their lives, but for those living around them it was a nightmare," the locals said. "It looked as though the people on the shoot were breaking rules and social distancing was totally out of the question.

"There were extras and what appeared to be dancers swarming around. Some people looked as though they were drinking too, so it ended up being quite rowdy," the source added.

"People in the area are respecting the law, so to see a pop star openly break it was poor form. Someone called the police. It was late at night and deserted there but, ultimately, it's a smack in the face for locals who had to listen to it going on."

It's not the first time the artist has been criticized for not following coronavirus rules. In August, the "Physical" hitmaker came under fire for attending a large social gathering in California during the pandemic.

Dua, a 25-year-old Libra, worked as a waitress in London while living on her own at age 15. She gained fame by posting cover songs on YouTube.
